Not easy to join Facebook in 2018!

AdamE2k

I’ve tried to join Facebook a few times this month but each time I do my account gets disabled within a few hours. Which is frustrating because I spend hours setting things up the way I want just to get locked out. It asks me to provide a selfie, which I do, then my account gets completely disabled! I submit an appeal via the online form provided and upload several government IDs. Today my account was turned back on for a few minutes but then it locked me out again asking for yet another selfie. If my experience is like many others I’ve read online, my account will just get disabled again and I’ll have to continue repeating the cycle. I’ve read blogs about people having to upload selfie’s and IDs several times a month! Review process takes days or weeks. Many users have the same issue of being repeatedly locked out, asked to provide selfies, upload IDs, then being disabled. I used to have an account (which I deleted) and I remember being able to use the platform daily for years with never any issues, repeat verifications or interruptions in service. ******There’s something seriously flawed with Facebook‘s (new?) automated security algorithms****** and they make it impossible to talk to an actual human employee. I’m literally just trying to join the platform. It’s a shame that Facebook controls how connected we are with the world. They have a complete monopoly and are now making it very difficult for people to join and keep their accounts.

THINGS NEEDED TO BE FIXED/ADDED

•If there's anything that you could do, even just one thing, is this-FIX THE VOLUME PROBLEM. I'm tired of not being able to adjust my volume during a video call. Sometimes it's too loud, even when I try to adjust the volume down, it says it's at the minimum but the loudness doesn't change. Sometimes it's too quiet, so I try to turn it up and when I push the up button for the volume, it shows like I'm turning it up, but nothing actually happens to the loudness. This is really annoying me. Fix it ASAP please.
•Another thing with volume-I'm not sure if this is something you can fix or only Apple can fix, but whenever I video call someone, the volume of everything else gets lowered WAY down. I can't watch any videos that my boyfriend tags me in while we're calling because I can barely even hear anything, and that's only when I'm wearing headphones. It's much worse without them. I'm not sure if you can do anything about this, but I hope you can.
•Something you could consider adding is multiple notification sounds, PLEASE?? I hate when I hear the messenger sound and it ends up being someone else's phone. Maybe a bit more customization too? Like adding a picture to a chat background, or at least setting out some for us to choose from. Or maybe more chat colors would be nice. Things of that nature.

I hope you guys see this!!

This App is horrible.

As in the title, this app has a lot of bugs and it lacks many necessary features. I am only using it because it’s it connects me to my Facebook contacts, if it was an independent texting application, i would have never used it. Why when you add someone to a group, they can read every previous message? Why you can’t delete a message that you have sent (deleting it for the other person)? Why going offline (aka turning off chat) still shows you as “active now” but only with the green dot disappearing, so you are basically telling people “Hey, this person doesn’t want to chat with you”? Why does the video call button starts glowing when both you and the other person are opening the chat tab (so i might be reading an old message and the other person would think that i am stalking)? What about the profile picture bug? If someone (me or my friends) changes their Facebook profile picture, it won’t changes in messenger 99% of the times. Also when going to check pictures in an conversation, they might not load or load slowly. What about the “active 1 minute ago”? It appears always except if i turn the internet off in my device.
All those previous bugs, “features” and other lack of features make the app just horrible. Hope that you fix those bugs and remove those “features” and add other necessary ones.
